Looking for innovative technologies for computer room refit
Posted on 2010-01-09
I currently have a project to refit a school computer room coming up over the next few months and I'm looking for some neat ideas that don't cost the earth to bring in a wow factor.
The existing computer room is in a school and was originally set up around 10 years ago. It has 30 fairly new machines which have been replaced over the last few years, 3 color laser printers, CAT5 cabling, a server, some pretty boring desks and a fiber link to a far more recent computer room. They currently use AB Tutor Control to manage the machines and monitor the students.
The current plan is to replace the desks with benches, change the cabling over to CAT6 with Gigabit switches, ceiling mount a data projector and... what else or what other technologies could be included to bring in that wow factor?
Points go to whoever can come up with the best and most workable ideas, remembering that it is a school and we need to be realistic with the overall cost.
